NYX Round Lipstick Fig : Swatch, Review

 

Guest post by Komal

 

This is my first post here at Corallista and having been an ardent follower of this blog for years, I’m quite excited to be able to contribute to it today, all thanks to Ankita 🙂 Coming to the topic of discussion today, I’ll be reviewing the NYX Round Lipstick in the shade Fig. NYX Round Lipsticks need no introduction and are quite a popular drugstore option especially because of their affordability and a wide selection of shades. And while the shade selection ranges from nudes to bright and bold shades, I’ll be reviewing a beautiful everyday-wear pink shade. So without further ado, let’s get to the review.

NYX Round Lipstick Fig Review

As their name suggests, NYX Round Lipsticks come in a round, black plastic packaging. They have a transparent bottom for easy identification of shades if you have more than one of them. The plastic packaging does feel a tad bit flimsy but for the price, one cannot complain! On to the actual product, the texture of this lipstick is very creamy and somewhat on the oilier side. Inspite of being creamy, the formula is not very hydrating and after a few hours of wear, it tends to slightly dry out the lips. The lipstick glides on the lips very smoothly, infact the only problem being its extra smoothness/slipperiness. Because of this slippery texture, it tends to transfer a lot onto anything you eat or drink. This particular shade stays on my lips for about 3-3.5 hours with very light snacks/drinks in between, after which it leaves a very light tint on the lips. It does not survive a meal. I prefer wearing this lipstick in the winters as opposed to the summers, mostly because its formula tends to ‘melt’ in the summer heat.

It takes about 2-3 swipes to make this shade fully opaque. NYX describes this shade as a dark neutral pink. On my lips, it looks like an everyday wear pastel pink with a slightly cool undertone and has a glossy finish. I feel this shade will suit anyone near to or lighter than my skintone (NC 30/35 in MAC). On deeper skintones, it might wash out the face.

Overall Thoughts : NYX Round Lipstick in Fig is a beautiful everyday wear pastel pink shade. It does not stay on for too long but the wear-time can be extended with a lip liner underneath. The lipstick goes on very smoothly and will be quite flattering on girls with fair to medium complexions. Although not the best formula I’ve tried, it is a good affordable drugstore option if you stay in the U.S or purchase it from international shopping websites.

Rating : 3.75/5

The color looks great for everyday wear for light to medium skin! And it looks really pretty on you Komal! I have had the same experience with this formula – its super creamy but not as hydrating and creases and transfers. But the color range and price make these quite irresistible!

    The shade is so beautiful,,, but in swatch its looking more pigmented than on lips (in last pic)…

    • June 18, 2015 / 6:45 pm

      Hey Joo! The shade is indeed quite pigmented. But on the lips, it gets ‘mixed’ with my natural lip color which lessens its intensity 🙂

    • June 18, 2015 / 6:46 pm

      It indeed is Shailja 🙂

    Looks pretty on you. Doll and B52 shades suit the Indian skintone as well. Have you tried their Matte lipsticks? I am in love with those, particularly Alabama and Merlot

    • June 18, 2015 / 6:51 pm

      Hey Debbie! I haven’t tried any matte shades but thanks for the recommendation. I love matte lipsticks and will surely give them a try soon 🙂

  11. June 18, 2015 / 12:54 pm

    The color is lovely! I wish NYX pdts weren’t so expensive here!

    • June 18, 2015 / 6:56 pm

      Me too Lana! The price difference is quite big between here and the U.S. But they are quite a steal if you purchase them from international shopping websites 😀

    • June 18, 2015 / 6:57 pm

  19. June 19, 2015 / 12:44 am

    I just brought this for the color, but the texture was really bad, wish it was better

    • June 19, 2015 / 6:23 pm

      The formula is a little tricky Preethy! Have you tried it with a lip liner underneath?

  20. June 19, 2015 / 1:53 am

    Such a pretty shade, thanks for sharing the review babe 🙂

  21. June 19, 2015 / 4:18 pm
